The Galaxy S22 Ultra leads Samsung's latest smartphone lineup as a replacement for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Some owners of the flagship in Exynos regions aren't too thrilled, though, as their phones appear to suffer from a weird display issue.

The Galaxy S22 series is yet to start shipping in the US but owners in some Exynos regions have begun taking delivery of their phones. It appears, however, that there could be an issue with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Multiple owners of new Galaxy S22 Ultra units have come online to complain about what seems to be a display defect on their devices. The issue looks to take the form of a weird pixelated line running horizontally across the display of the Galaxy S22 Ultra units. It occurs at roughly the same position in all shown cases, which makes this a rather baffling issue. 

At the moment, this issue only looks to be occurring on Exynos models—Snapdragon models aren't shipping till February 25—and only when on 1440p mode. It appears that switching the Screen mode to Vivid fixes it as well, all but confirming that this is a software-related issue. Nonetheless, considering the Galaxy S22 Ultra's hefty price tag, this is quite the embarrassing bug.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra on Amazon.
